60 Quality Stores Added to Doncaster Summer Sale

In their ongoing efforts to assist the bloodstock industry and their many mutual clients, Goffs and Tattersalls have worked together to facilitate 60 additional entries from the Tattersalls Ireland Derby and May Store Sales and Goffs Land Rover Sale at the Goffs UK Summer Store Sale in a joint supplementary catalogue.

These high-class additions will be sold on the eve of the Doncaster Sale on Monday 27th July to allow the Goffs UK catalogued Stores to be sold in their original slots. The additional stores have been confined to UK domiciled stores from either Irish catalogue as well as a very limited number from Tattersalls Ireland vendors with major logistical difficulties associated with the proximity of the flat yearling sales. Supplementary catalogues, which will feature revised stabling for all stores, will be available at the Sales Complex and online from next week. The Summer Sale format will now be:

Monday 27 July from 3.00pm
Supplemented Land Rover & Derby and May Stores (Lots 601 – 665)

Tuesday 28 July from 10.00 am
Spring Stores (Lots 1 – 228)

Wednesday 29 July from 10am
Day 2 Stores (Lots 229 – 294A)
Summer HIT/P2P Sale (Lots 295 – 484) 

The 60 additional horses boast some outstanding pedigrees and bolster what was already a strong line up of Spring Sale Stores. Some of the highlights include:

  • Lot 615, a Martaline own brother to Gr.1 winner VERY WOOD.
  • 616, a Walk In The Park gelding out of the Gr.1 winner BITOFAPUZZLE.
  • 620, a Getaway half-brother to the L. winner and Gr.3 placed DAWN SHADOW. Out of the L. placed mare Corskeagh Shadow, an own sister to the Gr.2 winners SHADOW EILE and CORSKEAGH ROYALE.
  • 627, a Walk In The Park half-brother to Gr.1 winner BELLSHILL.
  • 628, a Fame And Glory gelding out of a half-sister to the Gr.1 winner TREACLE and Gr.2 winner LUCKY BAY.
  • 635, a Joshua Tree gelding out of a half-sister to the Gr.1 winner SHEKIRA, dam of the Gr.3 winner WARTHOG.
  • 642, a Blue Bresil gelding out of a half-sister to the Gr.2 winner MOLOTOF and L. winner MIDDLE.
  • 643, a Kayf Tara gelding from the family of Stakes and Graded winners DIAMOND SAL, RING THE BOSS, MISTER SACHA etc.
  • 665, a Yeats own brother to the Gr.2 winner MASTER DEBONAIR. Out of the L. winner and Gr.1 placed mare SWINCOMBE FLAME.

Goffs UK Managing Director Tim Kent commented:

“This year continues to present challenges to us all but it has been a big positive to see our industry come together and collaborate for the greater good. It is in that spirit that we are pleased to welcome Stores from the Tattersalls Ireland Derby and May Store Sales to Doncaster which will sell alongside our original Spring Sale stores and small number of UK based Land Rover Sale lots.

“Goffs have already demonstrated the strengths of working with others for the best outcome and there is no better advert for this approach than the success of the combined Goffs Arqana Breeze-Up Sale at Doncaster earlier this month. We are confident we can follow that success with our Summer Sale on 27 - 29 July and have some outstanding stores to offer from our original Spring Stores together with this new supplementary session."

Tattersalls Ireland CEO Matt Mitchell commented:

“By working together with Goffs during these challenging times, it has been pleasing to be now in a position to offer a platform for vendors to sell stores that were originally catalogued in the Derby Sale and May Store Sale. The coming together of Tattersalls Ireland and Goffs ensures trade continues within our industry which has faced extraordinary disruption due to the pandemic. We will maximize our efforts to ensure the Derby and May Store Sales from 18 - 20 August are a success by ensuring that purchasers have confidence in making their decisions irrespective of their ability to attend the sales.”
